The CLD Standards Council & YouthLink Scotland The Standards Council for Community Learning and Development for Scotland is the body responsible for the registration of CLD practitioners, the approval of training courses and the continuing professional development of the sector workforce. We are pleased to be partners with a wide range of CLD practitioners, employers, agencies and organisations across Scotland and we are increasingly working with colleagues in the UK and Europe. Training, development and CPD (continuing professional development) is a core priority for us at this time. We are developing a new framework for practitioners which will be developed in partnership with the key players in workforce development, that includes YouthLink Scotland who are a leading player in the delivery of and co-ordination of training opportunities for the youth work field. This directory is a significant asset in this context and we anticipate its growth in the coming years with all of our contributions. There will be opportunities for you and your organisation in this directory; use it to the max and enjoy!! The Standards Council has been pleased to develop a fresh set of competences for the community education and youth work field of practice – available on our website for comprehensive download (http://alturl.com/ggs3i) as well as completed work in the context of values and ethics. Currently, with YouthLink Scotland we have developed a youth work commentary to accompany our CLD code of ethics, again available for download. Our work with national training approvals processes this year will ensure we have a core of training available at a series of levels for all practitioners across Scotland and beyond. The opportunities in this publication only add quality to this programme. We are grateful to YouthLink Scotland for giving us this opportunity to be part of a new development. A future aspiration is to explore the idea of quality marking to further recognise the excellent range and high quality of youth work training delivered by agencies and partners across Scotland. That is an exciting proposition!! Enjoy your training. Rory Macleod Director CLD Standards Council for Scotland

FOREWORD Welcome to the first edition of YouthLink Scotland’s ‘Youth Work Training Directory 2011/12’. This directory has been compiled by YouthLink Scotland in collaboration with our member organisations who have been in a position to share their training opportunities. The aim is to increase access, avoiding duplication of effort and financial outlay, and promote quality youth work training to related professions working with young people. The enclosed directory provides details of training opportunities across Scotland that are available to a range of staff and volunteers working with young people for the period of September 2011-March 2012 and now updated until August 2012, details of which can also be accessed in our online training directory at www.youthlinkscotland.org.uk We would welcome feedback on all elements of this publication as we work with our members to develop this resource. Over the next few years we hope to increase both, the level of members’ contribution to the directory, and the level of uptake of training opportunities through its dissemination. Any ideas or comments should be fed directly to Tim Frew: Acting Workforce Development Manager: tfrew@youthlinkscotland.org Best wishes, Jim Sweeney Chief Executive, YouthLink Scotland

INTRODUCTION YouthLink Scotland YouthLink Scotland is the national agency for youth work. It is a membership organisation and is in the unique position of representing the interests and aspirations of the whole of the sector both voluntary and statutory. YouthLink Scotland champions the role and value of the youth work sector, challenging government at national and local levels to invest in the development of the sector. Part of YouthLink Scotland’s mission is to be a key partner with government in workforce development and one of YouthLink Scotland’s key outcomes is to develop: “A clear strategic approach to workforce development, increasing the quality and quantity of training opportunities for youth work staff and volunteers.” YouthLink Scotland’s Members Training Provision YouthLink Scotland’s members provide a significant range, depth and diversity of training and CPD opportunities for those working with young people in many different locations throughout Scotland. The Training Directory highlights just some of these opportunities suitable for volunteers and paid staff in youth work and other related professions working with young people. The focus is on bite-sized one to two day training provision by our members that is open to other organisations. They offer significant value for money, combined with the quality that you expect from experienced trainers. Bespoke Training The Training Directory also promotes bespoke training opportunities, provided by our members and partner organisations advertising their services.

Links to information on CLD Standards Council approved youth work training is also provided.

The Scottish Youth Parliament has over ten years of experience when working with young people and developing bespoke youth engagement initiatives. We have created a range of training programmes for young people and would be delighted to assist external agencies currently engaging/or wishing to engage with young people in Scotland. The programmes are all tailored to your specific organisations requirements. A key element of the SYP Training programme is that they can be led by young people, who have been trained in facilitation. Examples of previous training include: Project Planning Training The SYP have delivered project planning and delivery training to various organisations including the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration and Fife Council. This training can also be adapted to planning and delivery of campaigns at both a local and national level. The training programmes were developed with each organisations requirements in mind. The programme included the following elements:

• • •

Communication Skills • Power & Relationship Mapping Facilitation Training • Campaigning Planning and Implementing a Project

Consultation and Focus Groups The SYP have a network of members from across Scotland, both supported through local authorities and voluntary organisations. Through this network, our MSYPS gain the opinions of their constituents and represent their views at a national and international level. This network is also beneficial for organisations who wish to gain the opinion of young people from a cross section of society. The Rural Communities Division of the Scottish Government approached the SYP to deliver a focus group to gain the opinions of young people from rural Scotland on the new ‘Speak Up for Rural Scotland’ document that had been created. The outline of the session was to gain young people’s views on the document, to ensure that it took into consideration the views of young and old.

A Duke of Edinburgh's Award is so much more than a 'pat on the back' for completing a programme of activities. It is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development, renowned by employers and universities alike for the qualities young people have who've achieved a DofE Award. There are three progressive levels of DofE programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The DofE is committed to ensuring high quality training is in place for DofE leaders and volunteers that run our programmes. It is the competence and confidence of our leaders that provides inspirational, top quality experiences for the thousands of young people who aim to achieve an Award. We have therefore created a Modular Training Framework which presents a wide range of flexible, relevant and high quality training opportunities. This includes a free online e-induction – the ideal training resource for any new volunteers or to upskill existing volunteers. Duke of Edinburgh’s Award training courses are organised locally to meet the needs of new and existing volunteers. The courses cover the basics of delivering the DofE programme and supporting young people, right through to the organisation of Expeditions.
